Death & Desire

teacupWelcome, welcome.

I’m Shirley McCann from Springfield, Missouri.  Every morning begins with a cup of Earl Grey tea. Can’t function without it.


I’m a HUGE Andy Griffith Fan.  My mouse sets on an Andy Griffith mouse pad. I have Andy Griffith light switch fixtures, a Barney Fife Hat, and numerous wall Andy mousepadhangings. And Aunt Bee’s Cookbook.

I’ve been writing for years, published mostly in short stories. Woman’s World Mini Mysteries are my favs.  Such fun to create a story with clues and see if the reader can figure it out.  I rarely know who the killer is until I’m done. Then I have to go back and put in clues for the reader.  Absolutely love doing these kinds of stories. You’ll find the link to these short story collections here.

You’ll also find a link to my young adult series, The Scarry Inn. If you like to be scared, you’ll like this six-book series.

I also enjoy romance. Who doesn’t, right?  I write romance under Kimber Jackson. I hope to have a new romance for you to enjoy in the near future.

I love, love love my writing friends. I’ve made the best friends anyone could ever hope for during my writing career.  A few of us have joined together to form Pen Gypsies. We’re a group of four who give talks to various groups about writing.
